Ninja Polish: Ambrosia, Divinity, Shillelagh

Heyo! Today I'm posting a massive entry because I'll be showing 3 polishes at once - all those Ninja Polishes that I own. Last autumn I was lucky enough to win a giveaway of Good Lack, Nail! blog and Caroline sent me my 3 Ninja prizes together with other beauties.

Here they are bellow, all stemming from Enigma Collection, all three beautiful as hell: left to right below you see Divinity, Ambrosia and Shillelagh.

As you know, Ninja polishes are mostly complex unusual colours, so I had two problems related to swatching them. Firstly, there was not enough daylight (I was swatching in autumn) and secondly, I didn't use a top coat on Ambrosia and Shillelagh, so I maybe didn't show all the possible colour shifts. In any case, no camera would picture them as real and beautiful as they are live :)

Let me start with the most prominent out of these 3 - Divinity.

Ninja polish Divinity

Divinity is a bordeaux/purple jelly base with a magic shimmer. Yes, magic, because I wouldn't describe it with one single colour. The shimmer creates a multichromal effect - from deep burgundy red to gold and sometimes green - so amusing to watch! The colour shift effect is strong, so you will not need a microscope to observe it :)

The application was mmmnot so easy-peasy, I couldn't cope with the wide brush that well, but in the end I won :) Unlike Clarins 230 and other similar unicorn pees, Divinity is opaque in 2 thick coats. The polish has rather a satin finish and definitely needs a top coat, only then you see the full beauty of the colour metamorphoses.

The next polish is Ambrosia, and on this one my camera freaked out completely :) I would also freak out on such a beauty, would I be in my camera's position.

Ninja polish Ambrosia

Ambrosia is a vibrant red with golden shimmer, and the shimmer changes the base colour from pink to red depending on the light and the view angle. Also a nice colour transition, but not as intense as in Divinity.

The application was ok after I figured out that I have to carry more polish on a brush, otherwise there are bald spots. The opacity is good, 2 coats are enough. Oh, and it definitely needs a top coat. Which I didn't apply. My bad.

And the last one, and my most favourite of the three is Shillelagh. It's such a cool word, too.

Shillelagh is an intense green shade with shimmer ...of I don't which colour. Inbetween bronze and gold, maybe, but also with a green hint. I'm telling you, these polishes contain some magic in them :) Less poetically, the colour reminds of a June bug.

The application was challenging, the formula is quite liquid and the polish was trying to get under the cuticles and where not, but I managed to layer it in 2 coats. Again, the top coat is necessary but missing (on the pics).

Sooo how do you like those? Which do you think is the coolest one? :)
Do you have any Ninjas in your stash?

  4. Shillelagh is also my favorite! I'm glad you like them! I actually found the brush and the formula quite easy to handle, and I'm really, really glad that I don't have to layer these polishes.

  5. Divinity is definitely the most interesting to watch, indeed. But Shillelagh and Ambrosia are really stunning! Those two just scream Christmas to me :P
